much. you are holding us up. i think that's the key. and i bet i won't even have time to formally say thank you and good by two miles so i will just say two miles how eloquent his little segue introductions have been and tell him goodbye and are low and all the rest of you for coming. i am supposed to read something. i was fretting about what that would be because i wanted to make it very short. i am going to read from the end of the prologue. one of the things that i was trying to stress in the talk that i gave yesterday and indeed the panel that i had appeared on the day before is that for all of the undeniable, appalling, dark side of ernest hemingway there was also the light. there was this bone of generosity and sometimes it came out best when a child was involved and not his own child necessarily, and especially an ill child. who would not respond to that? but he seems to respond in a special way. and so i was thinking of reading something of a key west passage and i said no, that would be like a piece of coal. i will bring something to newcastle so i'm not going to read that. i
that the oil industry makes every day which is the incredible bet against nature that consists of walking up to what to all appearances looks like an empty, barren piece of real estate and figuring out that anywhere between a thousand and 5,000 feet down there is rock. by the way, i don't know if you've ever actually seen the rocks that oil comes from. it's amazing. you would, you would walk by on the street and never look twice. it's gray rock. it's very dense. it looks about as hard and dry as anything you can imagine. and yet inside the microscopic pores of this stuff -- and i'm not even talking about shale now, i'm talking about regular sandstone. the shale is even tougher and even tighter. inside there, unbelievably, there are these microscopic pores that happen to be filled with oil. and so there you are making this bet against nature spending, you know, you can spend -- the sky's the limit on what you have to spend to drill a well, particularly if you're drilling arctic offshore. and your going to wager this -- you're going to wager this? over half of the oil production from the unite
arenas across the middle east. and this yearslong bet by the islamic republic of iran on these groups has paid off, because now their regional allies have become the most influential players in their respective arenas today. the result is that today it is the islamic republic of iran and its ideas of participatory islamist governance and an independent foreign policy that has real influence, real power in countries across the middle east from egypt to baa rape that were -- bahrain that were once clearly in america's camp. in strategic terms, the islamic republic of iran has been and is using through its narrative not its drones, not its tanks, through its narrative they are using the political awakening of middle eastern publics to alter the very nature of power politics in the middle east. as we describe in our book "downing to tehran," this has been an effective foreign policy and national security strategy for the islamic republic of iran, one that is exactly and repeatedly underappreciated in the united states. and at this point i'm going to hand it over to flipt to continue -- flynt
girlfriend, a twitter. [laughter] it was a sunday night before i went to bet going back and forth and people think they are dumb frankly. [laughter] but i was getting into an intellectual question about the role of government and it should not provide the nutrition of children. it struck a chord to me because i don't think people know what that would mean. we don't realize we live in a society that if you make small investments early you don't have to make big investments later and all of us are in fact, are deeply in debt to the kids because the more our economy grows, teachers, professors grows, teachers, professors, entrepreneurs are the greatest natural resource in america is our children. long story short, a woman says this and i go at her and she comes at me and we say why don't we see what it is like to live on the snap program? i went to bet and i woke up and it was a big story. [laughter] i called my staff and said guess what i am doing? but it was a powerful thing because we're one of 14 cities in america that has a food policy director. i think all should. we have done a lot of wo
-holders. shareholders may like high risk bets, particularly high leverage because they get higher returns from those high risks at least until something goes wrong. by contrast, debtholders have traditionally been a force for moderation in the marketplace because they only get a fixed rate of interest whatever the debt obligation promises and when the company starts to take more risk, it is managed. but implicit government backing of the deaths of our largest financial institutions mean that this market discipline has suddenly been undermined. so today i want to talk about my new book, while some firms thrive while others fail, this builds on my work at the financial crisis inquiry commission. we studied internal documents. i can't tell you how many, from financial institutions and their regulators, interviewed ceos risk officers, bankers, traders, regulators, publishingmakers and other people to try to understand from everybody's perspective putting it altogether what went on here and in 2010, we were still in a stage where people on wall street and in the financial system were in shock and pretty

the republican party and conservatives have been a little bet slow to define themselves and to let others define us. one of the things we found in our book is pop culture isn't completely dominated by the left. there are a lot of conservative undertones throughout pop culture. you know, there are media outlets like fox news that tend to be more conservatives. but i think generally because there is a little bit more, at least a little bit more domination by the left throughout hollywood, throughout the media, and throughout academia i think that it's a little bit for the left to define the right in disinformation's forces. starting that is mostly a matter of better p.r. and prodding out people and spokespeople who have broader appeal. there is no question that there are certain republicans and conservatives who have done a significant damage to the party, but i feel that they said and policies they tried to implement certainly the last republican congress is between 2,006 hadn't done much to further the reputation in the party but it's a matter of better blending and better p.r. petraeus connect
bandwagon hats back on for another right. on february 21st, 2011. on cnn gts offered a bet that the reigning regime will not be there in a year's time, close quote. two days later and foreign policy, hillary and i took stairstep a nice feature. i recognize the notion that two former u.s. government officials turn university professors betting george soros and anything made an absurd, but that's what we did. we given that not only with the islamic republic still beat the rams government and a year's time, but the balance of influence and power in the middle east to be tilted even further in the favor. almost two years since iris made his feature as they were eager to collect on it. later in 2011, the back-and-forth between ayatollah khomeini, the islamic republic later and president ahmadinejad over the resignation reinstatement of the intelligence minister and other issues. the same cast of iran expert on mainstream media gave developments overblown, even hysterical treatment portraying them as unprecedented signs of an insecure regime. such analyses revealed the very least lamentable ignora
. but the day-to-day attendance is smaller. the reason is the audience is spread out through off-track betting and simulcasting race is a different tracks. there are trucks there are no horse races them that people can wager on horses from other tracks. that said, it is not as popular as it was in the 1930's. a lot of that is in the 1930's the nfl and the nba didn't exist yet. they're also wasn't the proliferation of gambling opportunities. so, things have changed in that way to read it grew in popularity for quite some time and the biggest mistake that raising made was to not allow television. when television came out, they were not allowing a lot of major races to be shown on tv because they were worried people wouldn't bet on them anymore. television went to football and that hurt the sport a lot. it's coming back with a vengeance right now. all of the indicators are on the upswing for the races and i am very optimistic. >> there is no doubt that your [inaudible] >> we have a couple questions over here. >> what's your next book going to be? >> i get asked that a lot. i actually got a whole

[applause] >> will not be reflected, we do appreciate when serious journalists takes our stories and brings them home. for some of us, never have the chance to articulate those feelings and thoughts and observations. i didn't set out to write a war memoir. and i don't think it is in the end, dust-to-dust is about our place in time, our place in the landscape, but because i went to war, it becomes part of that journey, and necessarily it's part of our nature, unfortunately, this weakness for conflict we seem to tend towards, no matter how enlightened we become or how far we have progressed as people, no matter how much hope we have, that discussion can help us avoid the absolute and most definitive inability to articulate, you know, concessions, which is war. so, i'm going read a piece from this which puts is it in place. to put war in context, not to describe war so much. as being part of our history, and for us all, especially for veterans, obviously it's part of our individual history. we hav

mixed i have to say. >> host: in terms of betting successfully? >> guest: some of the things he let slip through unfortunately that good or bad he has taken the fall for the responsibility for. so i say mentioned, richard nixon had come on in to the presidency with a commitment to appoint conservative southerners to the core. i was one of his campaign promises, hard for us to even think about this today, but nixon was a complex guy in his own right. so rehnquist are in the department of justice is now supposed to be helping them find these guys in the very first two vacancies, first to nominees they go up to the court archon enhanced word and harold carswell, both of whom failed to get -- to be confirmed. rehnquist take the fall for that because he invited them both and professed unqualified and then i got hammered during the hearings. so by the time another vacancy comes up, cynics and his giddiness amazing confluence of four vacancies in his first term, pretty amazing. they're also coming up at the same time. too early in his presidency and two more with hugo black and john marlin. wit
that starts to take form. i bet you it will. >> it is in "first cameraman" that arun chaudhary documents his experiences as the videographer for the president. >> here's a look at some books that are being published this week. >> look for these times and bookstores this week and watch for the authors in a future on booktv and on booktv.org. >> we are here with the judge frederic block, author of an inside look of a federal trial judge. you were brought on the court in 1994. >> correct. 1994 i was nominated by president clinton, recommended by senator moynihan. i've been here for last 18 and a half years. >> your sub telecom inside look at the life and work. getting a regular day in the courtroom. >> every other day in the court room, there's no such thing as record in the courtroom. we send people to jail but we do that about three or four times a week. we get our share of so-called high profile trials because we sit in new york city. i had the gotti trial, and light in new york city is a very dynamic type of judgeship because we really are pretty much with the action is at. i've had terrori
, how do you assess the? >> let me just say first, i made a pretty good living and politics are betting against conventional wisdom and i think that it's a general principle of mind that the conventional wisdom is always wrong. and it was wrong here are it was wrong here because what we often do in political circles, in journalism, is we look at what happened at the last election, or past elections come and we think that's prescriptive for what's going to happen in the future. it's a much more dynamic process than that. and the assumption was well, no president has ever been elected under franklin roosevelt with unemployment-7.2%. but no president other than franklin roosevelt has ever inherited a situation such as dire as barack obama walked into. the american under -- the american people understood it. we did probably four or 500 focus groups during the course of the last few years. >> four or 500? >> that's against. it's probably wrong. now that i think about it, but -- >> but a lot. >> certainly several hundred focus groups. and next time we meet i will have the exact number. but we
ever heard it mentioned was -- he had one of his favorite employees he had a bet on the atlanta crackers baseball game every day and sometimes my dad would take me to those games in the 50's and we would have to separate at ponce de leon ball park in orlando because peter had to go sit in the colored section. that's the only time i ever -- my dad would say i don't like this. but he wouldn't invite comment because i was like it was dangerous. there was nothing he could do about it. it was kind of ominous clouds but you know, you couldn't do anything about the weather. so i grew up in that atmosphere, which was quite common in the south. and not until birmingham really did it break through and occur to me that really could be something done about it on the strength of the courage of these people, many of whom -- you know, in birmingham they were girls and little kids. the or eight, nine, 10-years-old marching to jail and having the fire hoses turned on them. and that made a very powerful impression on me. but by the time i got caught up and interested in the, dr. king was dead. i
. today i looked down and say to my lady friend all the time, that i'm betting on the walk, those beaches are eventually going to overtake -- not in my lifetime but in the in lifetime of younger people here -- you won't be going to south beach. you'll be going to south beach west, because cannot provide, and we're beginning to see it. and until such time as we stand up and face our -- the harsh realities of disaster, whether we call it climbed change or just hot and cold, the simple fact of the matter is that we owe it to the people in new jersey and new york and connecticut and elsewhere that sack diaffected, and we owe it to ourselves to be mindful of the numerous disasters on the horizon that we can't predict, but we can prepare for, and if we don't, then we will be doing ourselves a terrible disservice. thank you, mr. chairman. >> thank you. mr. woodall. >> i tell you, it's always one the great pleasures of my week, when it's been a tough week, controversy and lots of frustration on capitol hill, when i would see mr. dicks and mr. rogers come together in here and generally they agreed
take the other 50 and peer review would come out with 15 or 20 highly ranked. and i bet tony, maybe half would be funded. today, it is lucky if two or three are funded. and what's true for child mental health and development is true for medical research is true across the board in most areas of nih. this is not a question of starving the beast. this is a question of starving, whether we are going to starve not to beast, but necessary programs in this country. and we shouldn't start them. and so, we need to face up to sequestration. we need, in my judgment, to see if we can set a target dionne to 1.4 trillion over the next 10 years and we need to do it in a balanced way. and if not, we are going to threaten violence in this country, including the full faith and credit of the united states. the president was, in my judgment, absolutely correct to essentially throw down the powerpoint and say, this must not happen. >> thank you retaken all this time at this. >> the greatest honor history can bestow is the title of peacemaker. this honor now against america the chance to help lead the w

bet. those young men of learning, they would rhapsodize about spending one evening listening to the father of the constitution old fart. jennings, like part of the wallpaper, was present for hundreds of such discourses. and in the book id felt the thesis that jennings was able to absorb the theoretical underpinning that would support his inmate yearning for freedom and allow him to identify it as a natural right of man. late february 1837, jennings prepared the madison sitting house in washington for future use by the widow, dolley madison. paul jennings had returned to lafayette square for the first time in 20 years. james madison died the previous summer, and dolley decided she would make use of her sitting house in washington and sent jennings ahead to ready the dwelling. it was still february but in anticipation of the new administration, already the talent noise was gathering along with the first frost. they ask for your -- 28 years earlier. jennings took stock of a much altered lafayette square, a block from the madison house, the restored white house now at both the no
ever. no hope over the next five years that it will get better. i would bet there's no, but in this room that feels that his or her own tax return. my own tax return -- i'm guilty if i make mistake on that return with no materiality. and i can tell you what's in there at all. -- i can't tell you. that's one of the problem. my point is not that we have a tax problem. my point is that if you set as the gulf simplifying it, in your 20 years later and it's worse than ever, and that's what's wrong. >> and it goes back to my initial point. because in the 20 years we have done policy through, in a roundabout way. we have a policy through tax reform. that's why when people are talking a tax reform, which i hope will be one of the things we get on the agenda, it's been a move forward that people suddenly discovered the amount of money there are in tax expenditures. because what happened is that we been doing policy through tax policy as opposed to take on policy straight on. that has added to the complexity of the tax code. that's added to people's unhappiness with the tax code,
